  • Weekly Grade: A
  • 211.58
  • T-bone
  • 6-1
  • Weekly Grade: B+

Eagles #1 has probably been eagerly awaiting all the good news that's coming to them in this recap after they scored the second-highest point total in the league this week and took down T-bone 211.58 to 193.70. Even though the teams are tied for third place with matching 6-1 records, T-bone has a distinct advantage in points, 1,334.42 to 1,112.84. Having won their last five straight, Eagles #1 has become a very tough matchup.

Smooth Moves by Eagles #1

  • Ryan Tannehill had 99.58 points, the second-highest QB score of the week and the sixth-highest QB score in the league this season.
  • Jordan Reed scored 19.20 points, the best TE score of the week and the eighth-highest TE score in the league this season.
  • T.J. Yeldon put the team on his back with 25.40 points, the 10th-highest score among RBs in the league this week.
  • With 9.00 points, Dan Bailey had his highest output of the season and beat his projected point total by a season-high 27.3%.
  • Eagles #1 had most of their starters beat their scoring projection (6 out of 11).

Toyota Roster Tune-up

  • You gave it the old college try. Unfortunately for you, this isn't college ball. This is professional football at the national level; you know the acronym.
  • With 0.70 points, Malcom Floyd was last on the team in scoring and got only 9.3% of his 7.55 projected points, his lowest percentage of the season.
  • It's times like these when it's important to support your players when they're down. So move the mouse pointer away from the DROP button. Odell Beckham Jr. scored a season-low 3.50 points, 26.7% of his projected 13.10, which is his lowest percentage of the year.
  • Gotta hit rock button before you can start to rise. It was a season-low 3.90 points for Larry Fitzgerald this week. It was also a season-low for his performance versus projections, reaching only 28.9% of a projected point total of 13.48.
  • Justin Tucker did not meet his 8.13 projected points and has now underperformed versus projections for three straight weeks. He also scored a season-low 5.00 points.

What If

  • Eagles #1 would be 3-4 if they played T-bone every week.
  • Besides T-bone, Eagles #1 would have defeated seven other teams this week.
  • Eagles #1 would be 4-2 if they played the same schedule as T-bone.
  • If Eagles #1 had played every team in the league each week, they would be 29-34.
  • In addition to Eagles #1, T-bone would have lost to just two other teams this week.
  • And they say procrastination doesn't pay off! Had they played each other last week, Eagles #1 would have lost to T-bone 179.48 - 150.30.
  • T-bone would be 5-1 if they played the same schedule as Eagles #1.
  • If they played every team every week, T-bone would be 47-16.

Game Notes

  • Eagles #1 won again and is on a five-game winning streak, currently the longest in the league.
  • T-bone scored 193.70 points and lost. It is the highest losing score in the league this season.
  • Abe Lincoln once said, "You cannot help people permanently by doing for them what they could and should do for themselves." Somebody tell Tom Brady that. His 99.70 points led the league and was the fifth-most points scored this season, but T-bone could not get the win.
  • Eagles #1 had their highest score of the season and the seventh-highest in the league this season with 211.58 points.
  • The 17.88-point margin of victory was the smallest in the league this week.
  • The loss snapped a six-game win streak by T-bone.
  • Ameer Abdullah did little to help Eagles #1, underperforming versus projections for the sixth straight game with 7.30 points against a projected 10.43.
  • With 25.70 points, Eagles #1 got the highest combined scoring output from the TE position for any team this week.

Fantasy MasterpiecesWeek 7

Darren McFadden Oak - RB 2010 vs. Denver 196 total yards, 4 TDs For a brief moment in time, many, many hamstring pulls ago, Run-DMC was considered an elite fantasy running back, thanks to efforts like that in Week 7 of ’10 versus Denver.

His huge effort against the Broncos was part of a season in which McFadden would finish second to only Arian Foster in fantasy points per game among running backs. But his three missed games that season would foreshadow the future, as he quickly became a health risk punchline in fantasy circles by missing an average of over six games per season from ’11 to ’13.
Each week of the season we will bring you the top fantasy football performances of the past 10+ years for that week.
